Sophie Wessex went for an elegant cream coat accented by a gold necklace for a trip to Scotland with Prince Edward on Monday, much to the delight of royal fashion fans. 

Sophie Wessex nailed fall sophistication on Tuesday, wearing a cream coat and gold necklace for a special outing with Prince Edward in Scotland. 

The engagement comes as the Royal Family remains tight-lipped on Mike Tindall's I'm a Celebrity appearance, which is rumored to have ruffled some feathers inside Buckingham Palace

In the meantime, it's business as usual for the so-called members of King Charles' 'slimmed down' monarchy. Sophie and Edward, who are known as the Count and Countess of Forfar in Scotland, traveled to Angus's small county town yesterday to meet locals and to attend a special service for Queen Elizabeth II.

The countess kicked off the day with a visit to an Early Learning Centre, where she received a tour of the newly-built building and unveiled a plaque to mark its official opening. 

Never one to disappoint in the style department, Sophie looked effortlessly chic in an elegant, Max Mara cream coat and a dainty gold penchant necklace. The 57-year-old also wore a pink, floral blouse by Chloé and a brown velour skirt, completing the feminine outfit with a Halcyon Days bracelet and a classic black clutch.

With its oversized fit and front pockets, this longline cream coat from River Island is the perfect fusion of comfort and elegance. 

Meanwhile, Prince Edward was at Ogilvy Distillery, Scotland’s first vodka-dedicated distillery. The 58-year-old donned a traditional kilt while touring the company's farm, which has grown potatoes by the same factor for over 100 years now. 

Sophie and Edward reunited later that afternoon at the Lowson Memorial Church to attend a Service of Thanksgiving for the late Queen Elizabeth II. The couple stayed around after to meet with the 200 members of the congregation, before bidding their farewells and heading back to their home of Bagshot Park in Surrey. 

The whirlwind visit was met with plenty of praise from royal fans, many of whom took to Twitter to share their reactions. 

"The monarchy is in very safe hands," one person wrote, while another said, "Love this couple and their dedication."
